The ultimate in portable personal entertainment is now here – the new Acer Aspire Ethos notebook PCs. Called Acer Aspire Ethos AS8951G and AS5951G, these multimedia notebook PCs are available in the U.S. and Canada. Since they are made to deliver an unmatched high-definition personal theatre experience for various activities like graphic-intensive gaming, video streaming, and enjoying high-definition photography, DVDs, or videos, these notebooks undoubtedly put a new level of entertainment right in the palm of your hand!
These Acer babies are outfitted with edge-to-edge frameless displays that are available in two sizes. The Ethos AS8951G comes with an 18.4-inch full HD widescreen (1920 x 1080) display, while the AS5951G is equipped with a 15.6-inch HD widescreen (1366 x 768) display. Watching movies on the widescreen scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla glass display is possible, thanks to either a Blu-ray drive or a DVD optical drive that comes included in these notebooks. You can even extend your experience into a big screen TV through the HDMI port. For remarkable sound quality, Ethos 8951G boasts its Acer CineSurround with five Dolby-tuned built-in speakers and Acer Tuba CineBass subwoofer. The Aspire Ethos 5951G, on the other hand, includes True 5.1-channel surround sound output, two built in stereo speakers and the Acer Tuba CineBass booster.
The Ethos line features a big detachable touchpad that can be used as a remote control so users can control their movies, music, or a slide show from across the room. What’s best, these units come with a bio-protection fingerprint reader so unauthorized use of the PC is prevented.
